London Model Railway
|O Scale modelling for over Seventy
years. 2018 Update. The
building has been sold. Await further updates.
Renovations are currently in progress to enhance the public viewing and operation of the extensive Lake Erie and International Railway operations on our large 1:48 scale model railway.
|The L.E.&I. serves the towns and
industries of South Western Ontario between Lake Erie and Lake Huron,
connecting with other major railways of the region. Canadian Pacific,
Canadian National, Chesapeake & Ohio and its constituent
Many famous Locomotives and colour schemes of the present and past may be seen running on the metals of the L.E.&I.
Here we see a view across the layout
|This extensive model layout has been in
its current location for 30 years. Founded in 1935 by London enthusiasts
in a downtown storage space. The chance to move to larger horizons
was taken in the 1960's. The layout in its present state represents
the dedicated hours of modelling skills of many current and past members.
London's CPR station is portrayed by this large model. It is over four feet long.
|As with all model railroads, change and
modification are an ongoing feature of the landscape. A model railway is
never finished. In a club setting this is part of the fun. Classic model
buildings bear testimony to a past members attention to detail and
abilities to build from scratch. Alongside, the railway is evolving to
reflect the move towards larger and more modern railway equipment.
Plants' Poultry is shown in this view. It is to be relocated.
|Not all that appears on the layout is sober and mechanical. Humour of many types can be found all over the layout from members names on appropriate (?) businesses and vehicles to the sun worshippers on a discrete balcony.|
|Come and see our
layout operating. Join in the fun on a Tuesday evening, once a month.
Join our Club. Members needed to complete this scene. Associate members participate from as far away as Chicago. Members are continuously improving the layout.
